WINE REVIEW

This blend of 41% Pinot Noir, 38% Pinot Meunier and 21% Chardonnay is the second vintage from Jacob Leadley’s eye-catching Black Chalk label. The wine spent 20 months on lees before being disgorged in November with a dosage of 7g/l.

The Wild Rose 2016 has an elegant nose of wild strawberry with hints of raspberry as well as soft, light notes of sweet pastry and brioche.

It has a super bright and fresh palate with exuberant youth and freshness that leads to tangy cranberry and raspberry.

This is quite linear and direct, but there’s a beautiful sense of purity and an almost powdery, sherbert-like texture. Give it time in the glass, and you will be rewarded.
